  • 12 Jun 2018
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Webcast



Medicaid applicants or recipients must receive written notice whenever a state Medicaid agency or managed care plan denies, reduces, terminates, suspends or limits services, and they have a right to appeal the adverse action. Legal aid advocates play a critical role helping older adults navigate the appeal process, representing clients in fair hearings, and ensuring their rights are protected. In this this free webcast, Legal Basics: Medicaid Appeals, participants will obtain a basic understanding of the following: • Due process protections in Medicaid; • Appeals processes and types of Medicaid decisions that can be appealed; and • Common challenges faced in Medicaid appeals and strategies to address them. This Legal Basics training builds on previous Medicaid webinars in the NCLER webinar series: Medicaid 101 and Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports. Participants are encouraged to review these materials prior to the Medicaid Appeals training. Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time. Presenters: • Eric Carlson, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging • Jennifer Goldberg, Directing Attorney, Justice in Aging NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.
